Holee-SHITE. I hae resisted the lure of Facebook for a LONG time, but for some reason, last night I cracked.
And WOW. People I haven’t talked to in years, but always wondered about. If they were happy, had good lives, were doing the things they deserved to be doing. People I haven’t spoken to since Grade 8. Alive and well and living.
I don’t normally have a desire to “reconnect”, since that usually requires on going effort of some kind, which I can’t be bothered to commit to. Hey, I know myself. But Facebook doesn’t require any of that. I can just disappear if I want to after finding all the people I’m interesting in seeing how they turned out.
Weird isn’t it? You spend your school years trying to get away from the very people you end up connecting with.
